As featured on Festival Brides
Since the Curated Kitchen launch earlier this year, I’ve had the opportunity to form creative partnerships with a variety of talented wedding suppliers to collaborate on exciting features. In this case, it was the lovely Kim of My Little Tea Party, who created and styled this magical boho wedding shoot that was recently featured on Festival Brides. The look is ‘woodland luxe’, which Kim describes as “a relaxed, informal vibe with stylish touches”. Inspired by the fairytale forest location at Longton Wood in Kent, the creative team (which also included photographer, Matilda Delves, and balloon geniuses, The Glitzy Balloon Company) chose a palette of cream, blush, peach, white and nude, with hints of gold and copper. From my luxe picnic grazing table to the gin bar and children’s play area (not to mention the adorable fairy bridesmaids!), this styled shoot is packed with fun boho wedding ideas from start to finish.
For the wedding catering part of the shoot, Kim specifically wanted to tap into the grazing table wedding trend. She asked me to curate a lavish picnic spread, which was styled almost as a runner along the low table. Woodland-inspired treats included: a charcuterie selection, local cheeses, artisan crackers and breads, stuffed peppers, fruits such as figs, pomegranates, kiwi, and watermelon, fresh tomatoes, nuts and berries. The look was finished off with elegant white and gold vintage china and glassware, blush silk napkins, and vintage gold candlesticks. With a selection of pretty pillows and carpets, as well as a greenery-decked bell tent in the background, the end result was a boho wedding dream!
I also loved some of the other styled vignettes Kim created for the shoot, including a stylish little boho themed children’s corner. It had a lace tipi, vintage games and activities, and custom stationery and signage. There was also a gin bar in a converted horse trailer, and a chill-out area with hand carved wooden benches around a fire pit, and cosy blankets to cuddle up in. These would all make gorgeous additions to a forest (or any!) wedding, especially if you’re considering an autumn date and an outdoor venue.
Are you considering a picnic grazing table or grazing station for your boho wedding? Whatever your theme, I love putting together curated grazing tables that reflect the style of any event. Get in touch and let’s throw some ideas around!
